This is a well-written, sensible, useful book that is misnamed. The title suggests that the book talks only about pharmacotherapies, and only for maintenance treatment. Rather, each of the disorder-specific chapters—for example, "Depressive Disorders"—provides a brief overview of the characteristic psychopathology and course of the disorder, methods for screening and diagnosis, and key features to monitor, such as suicide risk. Available medications are reviewed, with straightforward advice about initiation of treatment, target dosing, drug interactions, and use in special populations such as children or the elderly. The importance and usefulness of concomitant psychosocial treatments are consistently emphasized.
